Choosing a font manager

Ummm. the last time I checked, the X server doesn't use any memory for fonts until the application directs that a font
be loaded. It is also unloaded when the windows using that font are deallocated.

Until fonts are loaded, they exist in the font directory, or on a font server which doesn't necessarily have the fonts in memory either.
